High-profile Republicans said they are writing bills that would end family separations, and Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker, a Republican, said he will no longer allow his National Guard troops to assist with border security as a protest against Mr. Trump's policies.

The separations are a outcome of a Trump administration policy to maximize criminal prosecutions of people caught trying to enter the US illegally. Sessions announced it on May 8, saying at the time, "If you don't like that, then don't smuggle children over our border". More adults were being jailed as a result, which led to their children being separated from them.
